Ibiza has been occupied numerous times throughout its history, from the Phoenicians in 645BC to the Greeks, the Assyrians, the vandals, the Byzantine’s and much more recently the clubbers from all over the world who flock to the island annually to satisfy their thirst for electronic music. It’s fair to say that electronic dance music put the island on the map to the generation who occupy it for a few months every summer but that is slowly but surely changing. Ibiza has become a haven for global foodies, the cuisine is becoming as famous as the music and the talented chef’s who control their kitchens like the superstar DJ’s who hold court from the DJ booth, are driving the food scene forward dramatically.
The last few years has seen Ibiza reach for and grasp a whole new level, more and more tourists are visiting the island and the island has responded, offering a wider selection of restaurants and food and drink experiences than ever before. Global restaurant brands mix effortlessly with single operators, all making a contribution to the wider Island tapestry. As you would imagine, for an island as creative as Ibiza, the people who have been inspired to make it more than a holiday destination are also bringing their individual thinking to the table, resulting in a string of new and exciting concepts within the food and drink arena. The Essentialibiza Food and Drink platform not only highlights the unique restaurant experiences and services that are available on the island but also the people behind them. From the chefs going that extra mile in the kitchen on our behalf to the talented bakers and their unique take on cupcakes to the mixologists and their constant search for the perfect flavour combination.

WhiteWater is the latest addition to the extensive range of beverages that are available in Ibiza. At first reading it may seem like yet another water option but White Water is so much more. The illuminating bottle will not only catch your eye but deliver a refreshing taste as the spring water filled with just the right amount of electrolytes and caffeine to give you a natural lift. In their own words the tattoo on the top of the bottle incorporates waves representing white water in it’s literal sense and yin and yang, which we feel is very reflective of the contrasting appeal of Ibiza – day/ night, fire/ water, femininity/ masculinity, all of that. In other words, it seemed right for an island that is paradise by day and parties like nowhere else, by night. Look out for the illuminated WhiteWater bars at events across Ibiza, recent appearances at the IMS Grand Finale and the Gatecrasher opening party, were hugely successful as Ibiza was introduced to an exciting new beverage that is set to make a massive impact this summer.
